Nice to hear your well on your way to recovery. Keep up with the glute medius strengthening. Its hard to tell whats exactly the cause of your pain and tightness return. Perhaps cross- country skiing is good for you tight IT bands and lateral knee pain as its one of the few sports that use lots of glutes?
